The customer might be the proprietor of a bar or of a flavored ice stand or might be merely a home chef who loves catering to friends using the kitchen island as a bar. Whatever the case might be, bar juice containers designed for bar use are meant to contain a syrup that is used to flavor drinks. They are not juice pitchers but purpose-designed bottles that make a bar or stand seem more authentic.
These bottles with angled spouts are commonly sold online and are not quite as frequently found in stores. They range in price and quality from the inexpensive to glass containers that suggest upscale service. All containers of this variety are generally cheaper if bought online instead of finding them in some boutique or culinary store. Get excellent quality at a price and quantity that is consistent with your business needs.
It is possible to buy bottles with lids for storage and then replace the plastic lid or spout with a metal one for a more professional appearance. Metal spouts for bar juice containers are quite cheap but significantly improve the perceived quality of the serving equipment. With the fancier spouts or not, these bottles will preserve the syrup for an extended period of time as thick syrup is naturally preserved when inside an airtight container.
The number needed will depend on the number of flavors or quantity of liquid that is likely to be used every day. A professional bar might contain quite a few different syrups or other drink additives in order to create cocktails according to customer wishes. Syrup dissolves in alcohol a little better than in regular water. It pours onto shredded ice and sets in if not too thick.
The only proviso is that the syrup should not be too thick or else it will not pour through a spout that is only a few millimeters wide. Alcohol should not be contained in a plastic bottle unless it is approved for solvent storage. The good news is that quite a few brands are, and mixing two alcohols or else alcohol and syrup into sparkling water is a stable of bar service.
The right plastic containers can hold alcohol or syrup. They come with lids that have spouts or are airtight lights. These interchangeable caps frequently come together with the same package. Convenience like this can help set up a bar with ease and great economy. If your old dispensing containers are old, consider investing in new ones.
